Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman told The Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference on Wednesday that Europe has no right to preach to Israel on peacemaking due to its own poor record on the issue.

"We are not willing to become a second Czechoslovakia and sacrifice vital security interests," Liberman said, ahead of an address at the conference by Czech ambassador. "When Push comes to shove many world leaders will be willing to sacrifice Israel without batting an eyelash."

Liberman also cautioned against a return to 1967 borders, saying that such a move would result in a similar situation to what exists in the Gaza Strip.
